NEW YORK - Gov. Andrew Cuomo was back in Harlem today pushing for his paid family leave proposal.

Cuomo says the plan would affect millions of New Yorkers, especially minorities and low-income workers who would not ordinarily be able to afford extended time off without pay.

The plan would grant 12 weeks of paid leave benefits for anyone caring for a newborn or seriously sick relative in New York.
